: Travel Talk: Southern Europe—: 10: Through the Gulf of Corinth to Attica

W. K. Duckett
Today Mr. Duckett is to take listeners on a Greek steamer through the Gulf of Corinth. On their right, on the north coast of Peloponnesus, or Southern Greece, they will pass Patras, from which currants and wine are exported all over the world. As the voyage continues, Mr. Duckett will point out the beautiful scenery, narrow fringing lowlands and steep mountain-sides, hill pastures and olive groves ; and so he will bring them to Corinth and take them on to Athens. He will show them the Acropolis, which is possibly over 3,500 years old, and he will talk of modern things too.

: For the Schools: Civilizations: 3: The Middle Ages: G.K. Chesterton

Talk for Sixth Forms
On Sunday, March 15, G.K. Chesterton told listeners his views on the appreciation of life. This afternoon he will give a rather more serious talk on a subject of which he has a vast knowledge, the Middle Ages. Although the talk is intended primarily for schools, afternoon listeners should not miss this opportunity of hearing one of the most brilliant microphone speakers.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
